Camps

 

At Wandin Yallock we are very lucky to have such a strong and well established camp program from grade 1-6. We believe that there are many benefits to going on camp and for these reasons we continue to provide our students with as many expereiences as possible.

We value our social community and encourage our students to connect with both their classmates and teachers. We highlight the importance of connecting with others off school grounds, since nothing is more memorable and exciting than a (small) trip. Our camps are therefore the most exciting events of the year, as they allow our students to create an authentic connection with their surroundings.
